HIGHLIGHTS

THE TALE

Cam Miller earned his Penn State offer back in November 2020, but like with so many out-of-region prospects this recruiting cycle, it was tough to get a gauge of Miller’s interest in the Nittany Lions being that visits weren’t permitted. Once visits were allowed, it was clear that Penn State was a major player for Miller. The Florida four-star took two visits to Happy Valley in a matter of three weeks: an unofficial visit on June 7th and an official visit on June 25th. While Virginia Tech and UCF also received official visits, it was Penn State that came out on top, securing Miller’s commitment just before August.

OUTLOOK

Miller joins Louisiana’s Jordan Allen as the second cornerback in the class, giving the Nittany Lions an interesting southern duo in the secondary. Unless a senior riser really impresses late, this should be it for cornerback in the class. Penn State should be adding another safety or two in the following days, but at this point the Nittany Lions appear happy rolling with Miller and Allen in 2022.

As for Miller on-the-field, he checks a lot of the boxes from a physical (6-foot with a good frame) and athletic (4.5 laser forty) perspective. He doesn’t play a whole lot of press coverage in his clips — it’s a lot of him playing far off the line of scrimmage, in a centerfield type role — so there might be a bit of a learning curve when it comes to the intricacies of the cornerback position. But overall, a good athlete that looks like a good football player, and has the type of growth potential that you look for.
